Let me remind you of all the wonderful items I received from my partner Joyce!
Here is a picture of some other items she sent!
And finally what I made!
|The Bracelet: I love the color of these vintage beads because they go so well with the turquoise spacers and the brass beads. Also Joyce did such a beautiful job with the patina she put on the heart.|
|The earrings which I mixed the metals to have brass and copper. The picture doesn't quite do the patina justice because the blues and greens are just beautiful!|
And finally the necklace. I placed the beautiful clasp that Joyce hand wired with the bead mix to the side because I really wanted to showcase it as well as the fabulous Vintaj focal piece she did. I added some copper chain that just goes partially around the necklace. I drilled a hole in the bottom because these yellow rondeles she sent are just so pretty.
I love, love love what my partner sent me and I hope I did her lovely things justice. Please visit Joyce's blog and see her pieces that she made with my bead soup! I know you will be as stunned as I was how beautiful her pieces are!!!
Joyce also sent me this lovely button she had and a silver clasp(you can see both in the picture). I am already working on something else and will post when I am finished.
